No Doubt rolls out dates; no Coachella or Lolla?

Those that have been spinning Tragic Kingdom or Rock Steady (shudders) lately, your time has paid off! No Doubt is back (duh) and just this morning, the California based band unveiled what will be one of the summer’s biggest tours. What’s the catch? Did they finish the new album that fast?nodoubtpic No Doubt rolls out dates; no Coachella or Lolla?

Via a video blog, the band announced the tour from the studio. “We’re not even gonna do a record, we’re gonna go right on tour and have fun,” Stefani shouts. “We know that if we see you guys, we’re gonna be really inspired to make music!” The rest of the band – Toni Kanal, Adrian Young, and Tom Dumont – were all present as well, sounding just as enthused.

The tour starts, as originally predicted, in East Rutherford, NJ at The Bamboozle Festival, and doesn’t seem to stop thereafter. However, on closer inspection, it doesn’t look like those “rumored” or “speculative” dates at Coachella or Lollapalooza seem likely. After all, the band is hitting up California early May and they’ll be partying in Chi-town come July. Sorry, Lolla-goers!

On the plus side, Gwen and co. are bringing along friends Paramore for the ride (yay?), and tickets happen to be only $10 or $25 dollars for select dates. Not too shabby for a band whose lady friend charges two or three times that on her solo tour! Whatever the case, your wallet will be happy and the extra dough will come in handy when Green Day or blink-182 announce their respected tours.

Also, if you’re really worried about your show selling out, the band’s doing the atypical “tour club” thang and for $15 dollars, you can join too. Considering the lack of festival appearances, that might be a smart idea.

Tour Club pre-sales starts February 26th, while tickets for the general public go on sale March 7th.
